Transcript

We have put our heart and our soul into Delicious Crete. Since 2013 that we started until today, it is everything we wanted and we thought it could become. A company with imaginative, original products, based on traditional recipes with pure ingredients.

We come from an island that is rich in nutritional treasures and cultural value, which we want to promote and highlight all over the world.

Every bottle and every jar of Delicious Crete hides within it a little bit of Crete. Special tastes, unique, unusual and definitely very imaginative.

Delicious Crete is a company that supports its partners and is being supported in return. From the very beginning, we have the same suppliers, with whom we work together, we have a relationship of trust with them, we choose the raw materials, which we always want to be pure, and we test too many products to end up with the final, which will represent our company. Also, the fact that we come from this place gives us the opportunity to have a direct relationship with our clients, who have been supporting us all these years.

We also come from a completely different sector and with our love for good food, for special tastes and our craze of experimentation, as a stepping stone, we tried, created and finally we were proven right for this undertaking.

The products of Delicious Crete are about 140. They are of different categories of olive oil, honey, spices, herbs, pasteli and sykomaida.

Product labels are mainly designed for export and what we have achieved is to be found in 18 countries, all over Europe, America, Canada, Russia, and our objective is to expand even further.

What we want for our products is to be different. An example is our smoked olive oil, which has been awarded in every contest in which it has participated. We take pleasure in creating new products and recipes, in order to have something new to present and it is something that repays us.

We are new in the food sector. This works as an asset and we have the will to learn and study what’s on the market and what we can do.
